Governor Kay Ivey took the stage in Montgomery to a crowd of cheering supporters Tuesday night after winning the Governor's race.

She beat Tuscaloosa Mayor, Walt Maddox, with about 60% of votes. Ivey addressed her supporters saying, “The people of Alabama have spoken loud and clear: we want to keep Alabama on the right track and keep Alabama working!"

A large crowd was with Ivey as she gave her acceptance speech. She made history becoming the first Republican woman to be elected Governor of Alabama.
